 I am hoping to trade this Merckx for a CX bike or a "Gravel grinder" or "gravel adventure" bike. I'd prefer a carbon frame and top-shelf components, but if you have an aluminum CX bike and want to add cash to make up the difference, let's talk.

2004 Eddy Merckx MX Leader Frame and Fork with Campagnolo Chorus 11S

If you don't know what the MX Leader is, it's the stiffest production steel bike ever made and ridden by 7-Eleven/Motorola and Telekom / T-Mobile pro teams. Eddy demanded Columbus make a new tube set stiff enough for his specifications.

This bike is an investment -- it will only appreciate in value with age as there are not that many MX Leaders in circulation

Frame Material: Custom Drawn Columbus Max Nivacrom Tubes
Fork Material: Custom Max Nivacrom
Headset Size: 1'' Unthreaded
Size: 57 cm
Color: Molteni Orange

Last run ever made in the original Merckx factory in Meise. Only 100 made

No dents, dings, or rust. Seat tube 57 cm Top tube 56.8 cm Seat angle 72.39° Head tube length 156 mm Fork rake 4.3

I purchased the frame from the original owner (who was 5'11"), and just finished building it up. The frame is in beautiful condition and everything but the frame is new.
